The UK’s largest annual gathering of advanced engineering professionals.


31 October & 1 November, 2018, NEC, Birmingham – Halls 3 & 3a

Advanced Engineering is celebrating 10 years of enabling the UK supply chain to meet face-to-face with engineering management, spanning: process, control and plant industries; R & D; design; test; production & procurement from OEMs, integrators and top tier industry players. This year’s show is building on the success of last year’s event where attendance increased by 15%.

Advanced Engineering 2018 brings together OEMs and SMEs, visitors and exhibitors to meet and do business, not only within their own industries, but in those less familiar areas they would not otherwise discover at a single exhibition.

Attendees come from a range of engineering specialisms, including; measurements & monitoring, process control, drives and controls, sensors and systems, automation, fluid handling, food processing, machining and many more. And all industrial sectors will be represented, including: motorsport; defence; oil, gas and energy; marine; and rail.

Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, the organisers of the exhibition, said: “Happy 10th birthday to Advanced Engineering! We have hit double figures and are expecting a record response from visitors and exhibitors. We’re very excited about this year’s exhibition when we will bring together the latest innovations in engineering which will help the UK’s manufacturers to continue competing and growing in the global market-place. Come and join us.”

Whether you are a visitor or an exhibitor, Advanced Engineering will not only provide you with a business forum and supply chain showcase for your own sector, but will also introduce you to new opportunities in industries using related technologies and services.

Co-locating as part of Advanced Engineering 2018 are:

  • Automotive Engineering
  • Performance Metals Engineering
  • Connected Manufacturing
  • Nuclear Engineering – new for 2018.

Advanced Engineering 2018 takes place on the 31 October and 1 November in halls 3 and 3a at the NEC. It is the UK’s largest annual gathering of advanced engineering professionals. It connects the entire supply chain.

Bringing together over 700 firms, the show will have huge numbers of visitors, more than 13,000 engineers, procurement managers and senior decision makers – all looking to source, specify and invest in the most up-to-date products and explore the latest industry innovations.
